Mitch, there you go again! Your best pan yet. Superb!
Posted by Darryl Rule on May 14, 2008 
Mitch, one of these days you are going to figure out this whole pan thing, and when you do, look out. Another great shot, I can't wait to see what you come up with next.
Posted by GEORGE REDMOND on May 14, 2008 
Excellent Shot.
Posted by James Belmont on May 14, 2008 
Well done, Mitch. It almost appears to be a kind of action "builders" photo with beautiful texture, detail and polish.
Posted by Erik Rasmussen on May 14, 2008 
Very nice! I like how the steam/smoke blends in with the clouds.
Posted by Charles Freericks on May 14, 2008 
That's impressive.

For you older Yankees fans, as Scooter would say, "Holy Cow". If you sit and look for a moment you can "feel" the motion. I echo James' comments, its what I call an action roster shot and I love these types of pictures. It's a great action photo but the engine is also the dominating item in the photo

Great rain shot!!
Posted by Mark Rosnick on May 14, 2008 
Wow! Awesome photo Mitch. The "Pan-Master" is at it again. Mark
Posted by Richard Stevens on May 15, 2008 
Mitch, I have to agree that this is your best pan yet. The slight blurring of the rods is just perfect.
Posted by Nikko P on May 15, 2008 
Cool. I was just reading an article about this railroad in Railway Age.
Posted by Donald Haskel on May 15, 2008 
I agree with everyone. Mark crowned you Pan-master. We cannot however, say enough good things about the looks of this beautiful locomotive. The engine that made Milwaukee famous.

Great quality shot.
Posted by Jim Dorst on May 15, 2008 
We all point our lenses skyward and salute the Pan Master. Superb shot Mitch.
Posted by Mont Panichjeerasin on May 17, 2008 
It's a smooth and absolute blending of smoke and steam on cloudy day. Impressive. You did it again!
Posted by Jeff Terry on May 18, 2008 
Wow. Best shot I've seen of the trip so far. And you even got it RODS DOWN! You're the master, Mitch!
Posted by Jim Barton on May 20, 2008 
A VERY much deserved photo of the week Mitch. Enjoyed talking and briefly driving with you.
Posted by Ken Kuehne on May 20, 2008 
And there I was thinking that was "just another 261 shot". Glad I took a closer look.

Beautiful Rain, Beautiful Pan, Beautiful Steam. Chalk down a PCA from me.
Posted by Ryan Parent on May 20, 2008 
Mr. Goldman, you are the master at panning. Nice work and congrats on POTW!
Posted by Gerald Oliveto on May 20, 2008 
Great shot! Congrats on POTW!
Posted by Warren on May 20, 2008 
Fantastic pan shot and a much deserved POTW! I bet you get a PCA on this one too.
Posted by Ron Flanary on May 20, 2008 
Mitch: it's the perfect pace shot---just perfect. This is how big steam should be portrayed.
Posted by Walter Scriptunas II - on May 20, 2008 
Such a spectacular shot. Looks like you got yout POTW button turned on!
Posted by Loyd Lowry on May 20, 2008 
Simply stunning. I doubt a video with stereo sound could impress anything extra to the human senses.
Posted by Tom McNair on May 20, 2008 
Absolutely stunning. You've done it again Mitch!
Posted by on May 21, 2008 
He's not the Pan Master; he's the Pace Maker!!! Uhm... something like that. Great shot, Mitch!
Posted by John Muenster on May 21, 2008 
The clouds, steam, and engine all come together with just the right amount of green on the bottom, an absolutely jaw-dropping shot. Thanks Mitch.
Posted by Jason Myers on May 21, 2008 
Great shot Mitch!
Posted by Darren Megowan on May 21, 2008 
The perfect pan. Amazing job on this one Mitch!
Posted by Scott Marsh on May 21, 2008 
It is nice Mitch, that screams 14X24 or something like that.
Posted by Steve Carter on May 21, 2008 
Well deserved Photo of the Week. Knew it was your's the moment I saw the thumbnail.
Posted by Steven M. Welch on May 21, 2008 
Excellent pace Mitch! You da master!
Posted by Ray Peacock on May 22, 2008 
I just keep staring at it Mitch.
Posted by Dean Kaplan on May 22, 2008 
Everyone else said it Mitch! Awesome pan shot!
Posted by on May 22, 2008 
I don't check RP for a while and look what I come back to! Absolutely awesome pacing shot, Mitch! Great sense of motion and detail in the locomotive and its surroundings... a PCA, for sure!
Posted by M.G. on May 23, 2008 
B-e-a-utiful engine, great shot Mitch. I love this picture.
Posted by Torsten Klose on May 23, 2008 
Mitch, I can`t explain what I feel when I look at this picture. It is great, one of your best ones!
Posted by CHRIS STARK on May 24, 2008 
Excellent as always Mitch.
Posted by on June 4, 2008 
Mich, What a fantastic photo that captures the power and essence of a steam locomotive doing what she does best.
Posted by Kevin Morgan ( on June 17, 2008 
Mitch, better late than never on the comment, right!? That is an absolutely fantastic photo. That could easily be a 4.5 foot by 3 foot poster image hanging on the walls of steam fans everywhere. Just a perfect job pacing job!
Posted by Chris Walters on July 3, 2008 
If ever anyone needed proof for why 'grey days' bring out the best in truly creative and talented photographers, this is it. Who needs blue skies! Brilliant, truly!
Posted by Scott Marsh on November 19, 2010 
For what's it worth This is my favorite Pan pace photo of yours. Steam just looks better with clouds as you don't have all the shadow problems!
Posted by Steve Larson on October 30, 2015 
One of the all-time best! What a classic. Thanks for sharing, Mitch.
Posted by Steve Hughes on January 28, 2017 
I love your classic photo of one of my favorite locomotives. Mainline, big steam at speed, absolutely perfect! Thanks
